Located just 15 minutes west of downtown Denver, Lakewood is a well-established city chock full of arts and culture, a bustling economy and nature galore. Its growth has been fueled by its prime location at the Rocky Mountain foothills, excellent schools and a wide variety of cultural and recreational offerings. To that end, Lakewood is one of only ten communities to win the 2016 All-America City Award, a prestigious national award given each year. In 2015, Livability named Lakewood a “Best Place to Live.”
To add to its list of credits, Lakewood is also home to a first-of-its-kind senior housing cooperative in the area—The Village Cooperative. Active adults 62+ can retire and live a worry-free lifestyle in their community while enjoying more of what the city and surrounding areas have to offer. That’s because the Village Cooperative of Lakewood offers all the advantages of home ownership along with the benefits of no maintenance, great amenities, and the ability to stay close to family and friends all at an excellent value!
The Village Cooperative of Lakewood includes 61 spacious homes
in one bedroom, two bedroom and two bedroom with den designs built specifically for active adults who want ownership and freedom to pursue their interests with none of the hassles.
Our single-level homes range in size from approximately 875 sq. ft. to over 1,600 sq. ft. within a three-story building built over secure underground parking. Standard features of this Village Cooperative community include a club room, reading areas, community area, woodworking shop/flex space, guest suite, garden plots, underground heated parking with a convenient car wash bay—all wrapped up in a fully secure building. The homes are equipped with all appliances including a private laundry room, plus in-home storage, walk-in closets and individually controlled HVAC systems.
If living in a community of peers of similar age and independence sounds good—one that offers a sense of pride of ownership, control, social opportunities and fun—then you will find this to be an excellent option for you to call home! In addition to a carefree lifestyle, it offers many unique amenities that are suited for retirement-age residents, including “while-you’re-away” services that enable you to travel without worries back home.
